In our Legacy Challenge we meet the founder of our legacy and get her into a housing lot and ready to go. For this Let’s Play of the Sims 4 we will do doing a challenge within the game, or rather we will be doing a mixture of three challenges rolled into one. The challenges are listed below with links to farther details and our hybrid version. Below that we have the indexed list of all the parts of this Let’s Play so far. Enjoy!
The Legacy Challenge tasks you with creating a single founder Sim moving them in to a giant lot, and starting out in abject poverty. Your founder must build their house, build their wealth, and ultimately bring in the second generation to continue when they die. In this challenge you play a single family for 10 full generations. With less control over how your children turn out and more challenges thrown your way, the challenge asks the very important question. “What kind of Legacy will you leave?”
The Random Legacy Challenge
The Random Legacy Challenge is a 10-generation legacy-style challenge which is defined by its randomly-generated parameters governing careers, types of marriage, number of children, and even more aspects of the game, that each generation must follow. No two Random Legacies are ever the same, and even the luckiest rolls are impossible to plan for more than a generation in advance, due to the fact that each new generation’s rolls are only calculated as that generation is born.
Rosebud (Rags to Riches) Challenge
Can you become a Sim-Millionaire? In Sims 4 is an achievement called ‘Rosebud’ with the following goal:‘Gain 1,000,000 Simoleons in a single household‘. That is the idea behind this challenge.
Our Cross-breed Version
For our game we are going to make a cross-breed of all three of these challenges. Starting with a basic legacy, that is Founder Sim and playing through till we have completed ten generations of that family line. We are not going to score points for this challenge but we are going to try and hit as many of the goals as possible. To make it a little but more challenging I am going to be mixing it in with a Rosebud challenge, so our Founder is starting off broke and the aim will be to generate a million gold for the household by the 10th generation. We will also be introducing the Randomly rolled traits and a randomly rolled challenge for each generation just like in the Random Legacy to keep it interesting and fun.
In this part of the Let’s Play I introduce the Founder, her traits are chosen at random by survey of my friends and we move her into a lot to get rid of all her cash moneys. All the way down to $10. Going forward I will be choosing heirs by popular poll that will be linked to the relevant videos and I will be choosing traits at random by rolls, we are aiming to get from our Founder Sim and her $10 to generation ten hitting the Rosebud achievement. While completing or working around the random challenges along the way.
